The Farmer's Wife Review


This early Hitchcock silent film (a comedy, no less) is probably only going to be of interest to Hitchcock enthusiasts, and even then they're going to have to be rabidly enthusiastic. Here's the gag: A farmer's wife dies, and the farmer gets his maid to woo a series of women to replace her. None of them will have him (and you can't blame them), until he realizes (doh!) that the maid was meant for him all along. Clocking in at more than two grueling hours, you'll find flashes of Hitchcock's skill on display, but the entire film (preserved badly) isn't worth suffering through for them.
